Jimmy Smith is an American icon. In the world of jazz, he has remained uncontested at the top of his field for more than four decades. On "Dot Com Blues", Jimmys first new record in five years, he takes blues organ to new heights. Having always had a deep rooting in the blues, it comes as nosurprise that he would do a project focused on the genre. Producer John Porter and Verve Music Group President Ron Goldstein have assembled an all-star cast, featuring vocal performances by such blues greats as B.B. King, Dr. John, Etta James, Keb Mo, and Taj Mahal. The result, one funky blues album that will appeal to any jazz or blues fan, and also seduce the casual listener who just requires a little laid-back organic groove in their life.
Jimmy Smith (organ); Russell Malone (guitar); Reggie McBride (bass guitar); Harvey Mason (drums). With special guests Etta James, Dr. John, B. B. King, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, and The Texacali Horns featuring Darrell Leonard and Joe Sublett.
